A Letter from the President...
The Power of Young People There are over 6 billion people in the world and more than 1.2 billion of them are young people. The power of young people to inspire, and be the change the world needs today is beyond measure. Everyday, this simple fact inspires us as the world’s largest studentrun organisation. The challenges that face the world we live in today are constantly changing but as young people we have as much responsibility in addressing them as the generations that precede us. We have recently witnessed one of the world’s most !"#$"%&'$()%$'$&"'*)&+"!,!-)(.,)/,+"*!)01)&*"2'(,)&.'$#,)'+,) growing, the gap between the rich and the poor is constantly 3"4,$"$#-) (.,+,) '+,) 20+,) &05$(+",!) 3"(.) "$(,+$'*) &0$6"&(!) than ever before, over 10 million children die every year before they reach the age of 5, politicians still seem to be making promises they cannot deliver on and so on. These are just some of the challenges we face today. As young people we can look at the current state of the world and blame our misfortune on what has been inherited from previous generations. We can continue to blame our past and hope for success in the future, or we can take the challenge that is in front of us and tackle it with our best. We can see a chance to capitalize on all the wonderful things our parents’ and grandparents’ generations started. As AIESEC, we look at the world today and we see incredible opportunity for positive change. “If all you ever do is all you’ve ever done, then all you’ll ever get is all you ever got.” In this past year (June 2009 July 2010) we have truly embodied our responsibility of developing the people who will make a positive impact in our society. We have grown at a rate of over 50% across our major organisational goals while most organisations have only now started (0) +,&07,+) 1+02) (.,) %$'$&"'*) &+"!"!8 We now have over 50,000 members in 110 countries covering over 1700 universities worldwide. In this past year we saw more than 80% of all entities in AIESEC grow and while doing so we increased our impact exponentially. As an organsation we have existed for 62 years and as of today we are bigger and better than we have ever been. This past year we have implemented or initiated systemic changes that make our organisation leaner even while we grow at exponential rates. One of the key factors in our growth has been the power of simplicity. This growth comes from tens of thousands of members across local chapters clearly understanding our organsation’s ultimate
objective: create agents of positive change through the AIESEC Experience. We have been at major forums around the world including COP 15 to represent the views of young people worldwide. We have done this while being part of the discussion and not raising placards outside. We have begun to harness the power of social media as an effective tool in reaching thousands of people everyday. 2010 is a very special year for AIESEC as we come to the end of our 5 year organisational midterm ambition. We come together this year as an association to celebrate the achievement of AIESEC 2010 and to create AIESEC 2015. The power of young people is incredible. This past year AIESEC showed that harnessing this power is crucial for the world we live in, especially if we are to tackle the major challenges in front of us. This report is a summary of our main achievements in this past year and a very small token of our appreciation and gratitude for our partners, supporters, alumni and thousands of active AIESEC members who make all of this possible. Thank You. Best Wishes,

Make history. AIESEC partnered with us to develop their 100 most senior leaders through an 18-month experiential leadership programme. Our programmes with other market and thought leaders pay for themselves several times over. But investing in the leaders of tomorrow will have returns far greater than that.
